Tents & Shelters

The first thing that comes to mind when camping is pitching a tent. There are several camping tents of all sizes to choose from. If you are looking for a smaller tent that can fit couples or families of four and be set up in just a few minutes, you might want to explore great value brands like Field & Forest and Eureka! If you’re looking for larger, more luxurious tents, take a look at the Coleman 8-person Red Canyon tent or the Wenzel Bristlecone 8-person dome tent. These shelters can fit more campers with room to spare for desired comfort and privacy. Don’t forget to pick up an extra tarp for rain protection and to keep your firewood nice and dry. You can find the right tent for your next trip among our variety of popular brands.

If sitting on the ground or on top of your cooler doesn’t sound very comfortable, remember to pack some camping chairs along for your trip. Traditional and quad folding chairs are easy to carry, store, and they even have cup holders so you can relax and enjoy an ice cold drink after a long hike. If you’re looking for maximum comfort, anti-gravity lounge chairs let you fully recline so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the summer weather. Hammocks are also a comfortable option if you like elevated relaxation. You can find popular brands like Coleman, Mac Sports, Rio Brands, and even our own Fleet Farm lounge and folding chairs to choose from for your campsite.

Sleeping Bags

Whether you’re sleeping under the stars or in a tent, sleeping bags, pads, and blankets are great ways to make your camping experience a little more comfortable. Recreational campers who go camping a few times a year may want to look at reasonably priced sleeping bags and camping pads. Airbeds and pumps can also add comfort to your camping experience. There are also warmer, more form-fitting, mummy sleeping bags that can withstand harsh temperatures for the more adventurous, year-round campers.

Camping Cookware

There’s nothing like grilling burgers, frying fish, or cooking s’mores on a cool summer night. Classic campfire cooking items like cast-iron pans and skillets are a must for open fire cooking. Other essentials like the Coghlan’s camp grill help you hold your cooking equipment above your campfire for a safer, more efficient cooking experience. If you’re looking for a different way to cook, you should check out the wide range of stoves, charcoal grills, and cooking sets for you to choose from. Don’t forget to bring along some tongs and picnic forks to easily rotate and transfer your food from fire to plate.

Skin Protection for Sun and Bugs

When you’re enjoying the great outdoors, it can be easy to forget to protect your skin from the natural elements. Pick up some sunscreen or lightweight fishing shirts to protect your skin against UV rays. We recommend using 30+ SPF and kid-friendly sunscreen with added sun protection for the little ones. Don’t forget to pack some bug spray to keep those pesky mosquitoes away. We recommend Deep Woods or Max Deet insect repellent if you’re going on long hikes or camp further in the forest. Off! Family Care products are great for general use against mosquitos and other pests. We also offer flea and tick repellent for your convenience.
